    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits compared to other automotive companies. Advancement opportunities do come up regularly.

    De-centralized structure makes things harder and slower than they should be for global initiatives. Culture is focused on short-term financial results, although there are some initiatives to move towards long term strategic planning.
